We brought the girls to the beach today. It was absolutely one of those perfect beach days on the Cape. AND the water was actually warm. If you are from New England, you know how the water is never warm.
We hit horrible traffic on our way there. I think we were stop and go for at least eight miles before the bridge. It ended up taking us twice as long to get to our destination. During this time, the girls consumed an entire sleeve of Ritz crackers.
We also ran into some traffic on the way home because everyone HAD to stop to look at the broken down truck on the side of the road. The girls were extra fussy because it was REALLY late and insisted that I sing their favorite song, The Wheels on the Bus. To be honest, I don't really know any of the words outside of The wheels on the bus go round and round, round and round, round and round, the wheels on the bus go round and round all through town. I supposed I should just Google it.
I have been making up my own lyrics just to keep the girls entertained. You have to realize that I sang that song for about 20 minutes in the car and then again for about 10 minutes when we arrived home so that Allie would eat something. A made up verse of mine is The driver on the bus says sit your bum down. Well, I was trying to call Grammy to ask her about the traffic (they were ahead of us) and singing at the same time. I changed that verse to sit down instead of sit your bum down. I guess I'm second guessing myself as to whether that is appropriate for two year olds. The girls freaked out. Em said, "Momma, stop it. Sing it right."
I'll try to post a beach recap with photos tomorrow. Hopefully.
I also want to note that we are on night number four of the girls falling to sleep without any crying. Thank you, Sleep Fairy.
